Dance Fairy Dance!

December 17, 2006

[edit] I got an email from someone who thought the heading to this post was a reference to dancers being gay.  It was not meant to be so.  I was intending to referencing the “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” to segway into the whole post.  Apperently no one got it.[/edit]

Well, its officially that time of year. Last week was my brithday, today is Kelli’s bithday, and this afternoon we went to the Nutcracker (interesting sidenote: the ballet was a huge flop in its day and Tchaikovsky is alleged to have killed himself shortly thereafter). Tulsa Ballet is regaurded as one of the best in the Country and well regaurded internationally, they do their own rendition of the Nutcracker based in the 1920′s. I didnt like it as well the first time I saw it, as it was simply not what I expected. However, every year it grows on me, and a change of pace would be needed every 50 years or so I suppose!

While downtown Kelli, Kaldun and I also went to the Center of the Unvierse. Essentially its an open air walkway over the railway tracks that devide downtown Tulsa from the old warehouse (Brady) district. I’ve heard aobut it for years, but have never taken the time to go check it out since on a weekday (when I am normally downtown) finding parking there would be a serious problem. Anyway, its just an old road that arches over railroad tracks. The road has been closed and is a walkway now. In the middle of the bridge there is a circle, standing the middle of which you hear an echo of yourself (even at a whisper). Keep in mind this is all open air, the nearest building or wall is 20 or 30 yards away and the echo comes from all sides. Pretty cool IMHO.

Center of the Univerise

Everyone (both of you) reading this probably think it is incredibly lame, but damnit, its neat.

To wrap this up (it is my wife’s bday and all), I’ve been working more and more at my job/not job lately, I got a super cool new printer from my parents for xmas/bday, I might have ot kill Kaldun for HIS performance at the Nutcracker this afternoon, and its back up in the 70′s here.

More some other time. Deal with it. :)
